soxiante-dix-sept: Some Sort Of Magic Happens

Kodak Tri-X
Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona
September 2011

     This has to be one of my favorite photos I have ever taken. Tri-X has a way of making this world appear even more beautiful than it is - if that's possible. How does photography do this? I've been reminded of it's mystery over and over since beginning my Darkroom Photography class this month. Yes, I understand that it's pure science, but I have to believe that somewhere in between the camera taking in the light of a moment and the chemicals reproducing it in negative form, some sort of magic happens.
